The Double Meaning behind the blog title 'Dream Follower:'
First, for 14 years I was a ballroom & social dance instructor, and have studied both leading and following. I feel that learning to follow is full of nuance and is often misunderstood. I made it one of my personal goals to become a really excellent follow on the dance floor, and will probably talk a lot about the art of following - both in and out of the context of dance.

Second, I am a huge fan of author Michael Ende, probably best known for The Neverending Story. The book is incredible, and the first film captured some of the essence. (Please don't watch the other two films...I urge you to read the book though!) Anyway, at least twice in my life I have been caught in a storm of my own indecision, and my inner Moon Princess yelled to my inner Bastian...'Why don't you do what you dream?' I tear up even now as I write this little blurb. The tension between being practical, keeping my feet on the ground and my head out of the clouds (at the risk of compromising my inner vibrancy, true self, and who knows what else)...and reaching for my true dreams (at the risk of losing everything) is still a very real struggle. In fact, one of those struggles lead to my 14 years of teaching dance, so we can see which voice won the battle that fateful day when I was staring at the want-ad...

And so I strive to be two kinds of Dream Followers in my life. One has to do with connecting with others, and the other has to do with connecting with my inner Moon Princess and the world of possibility that opens when I do...

Movie Night

I shared a movie with two coworkers last night, and it was a worthwhile film (IMO)

I got home quite late, but we laughed and it seemed they enjoyed the quirky thought-provoking docu-dramatization.

Funny how watching something in a new environment can make it seem like a new experience.

If you've never seen What the Bleep Do We Know, I recommend seeing it.

Sometime soon I will elaborate, but I must get on with my day!

Have an intentional day!

    1. Oooh, well I'm a huge fan. If you like quantum physics, theology, psychology, or The Secret you might enjoy this very thought-provoking movie.

      (Yeah, me too...we're a solid bunch)

  2. The movie sounds familiar... I think I had a copy of it sitting around my house for a long time, but it has suddenly and mysteriously disappeared....

    1. Hmmm, mysterious. :) Thanks for letting me have another viewing party. One of these days we'll have to get you and The Queen a long enough nap from Prince so you can also watch it ;)
